September 18-24

COM is partnering with local restaurants to hold a "Food Fight" competition. During Hunger Action Week (Sept. 18-24), local restaurants will be offering a variety of promotions to raise money for COM's food pantry. The restaurant that raises the most money will be crowned the "Food Fight Champion." So, let's "Eat Out to Help Out!"

Hunger Action Day: Sept 23

Friday, Sept. 23, 2022 is Hunger Action Day, or as we like to also call it, "Go Orange Day." This is a day to wear orange to show your support for COM and the fight against hunger. Hunger Action Day is also a great day to volunteer in the food pantry. Check out pics from last year:
